The 19s are good out of the box, except the stiff long trigger. Go with a lighter connector and a competition spring kit (all for $20) and its good to go. Takes less than 10 min to install. I also put on trijicon night sights, worlds of difference. I also like the Fire Dragon 2 stage recoil guide rod system replacement, makes a notable improvement. Add a grip plug of your choice and its complete. Havent found any Glock 9mms to very picky on ammo, but i stay away from steel case and cheap surplus crap. Last 19 I bought was about 3 months ago for $479+tax. The poly rifling/cast lead issue can be dealt with, such as using harder cast, or frequent scrubbing, or an aftermarket barrel. Storm Lake match is very good, Lone Wolf is good also. Holsters: to each their own. Gotta find one that you like, fits you, and works. Lots of choices, but none are universal for everyone. And remember, it was made to use, so dont be shy about taking it out and shooting it, often.

Some of us might have collected a few extra mags along the years. These are all 10mm.

The big extended mags are fun i guess, but heavy. The Glock brand is the only one Id use. The korean imitations are pretty much junk. Im sure theres a few good ones out there tho.

I would be hesitant to rework the innards of your Glock. The factory sends out a reliable product, with just enough trigger pull pressure to keep you safe. Redoing the trigger is something, some instructors would caution you to never mess with, me being one.

I have a Glock, over twenty years old, never messed with the guts, works fine. My groups on target are just fine.

You can buy the Glock long mags off of the glock web site!! Don't think they make em!! But obviously they(glock) endorsing the mags on there web site would probably make them at least range friendly!! And that's all I would use them for!!

Buy three and wouldn't have to reload anything!! Since I only shoot around 100 rounds per gun, per visit
